Workshop - 'De-stress' after Christmas

 What a great day Wednesday was, it was the first Workshop of 2012. As usual we worked on 2 projects.
This card was just 'what the doctor ordered', a de-stress after Christmas project using the wonderful technique of Zentangle (many thanks to Barbara Gray for this). The stamp used is a Clarity wired heart stamp.
So relaxing!!
This card was a gentle introduction to Steam Punk, using Kanban toppers. The background was made by stamping and clear embossing to form a resist and then distress inks applied. An old telephone book page was distressed to add interest. The finishing touches of white gel pen and gold card candi were added.
A crafty day was had by all at HG Arts & Craft, Brookside Garden Centre, Poynton, Cheshire.
